I am a teacher researching a soldier from this battalion for a student in one of my teaching groups. He was buried near Bolougne behind trench lines and was wondering if Pals knew of the movements of the battalion at this time. Many thanks in anticipation.

April 15th 1918 at Crucifix Hill near Locre where the battalion had it's last major action of the war.

What's the name and number of the man you're interested in?

Boulogne would probably have been a Base Hospital for No 7 area so your subject would probably have been wounded further inland and brought to that place by ambulance train etc. He may not necessarily have been wounded in April 1918. There were 3 Military Medical facilities in Boulogne.

To add to Jim's post the 1/4 Lincolns were part of 59 Division 177 Brigade(2nd Lincoln and Leicester),a Territorial Force. For the first 4 months of 1918 the Bde consisted of 1/4,2/4 and 2/5 Bns Lincolnshire (though the 2/4 amalgamated with the 1/4 in Jan 1918) and 2/4,2/5 Leicestershire,with a bit of stiffening from 177 Bde Machine Gun Company and 177 Trench Mortar Battery.

Good hunting !
